The charm of the Christmas tree is undeniable and there is no quenching the joy that these prickly wonders ignite in us each December. The great news, the coveted triangular-shaped trees are no longer difficult to find, with growers throughout Sydney putting in the hard yards in the months leading up to December.
While many Christmas tree farms sit comfortably along the city’s fringe, online ordering and delivery services make the process a breeze regardless of your schedule. To help you out a little, we’ve compiled our top picks for buying, erecting and caring for your tree.
Based in the Southern Highlands, the ‘Paddy’s River’ property has been growing Christmas trees for over 30 years. Available through an online ordering system, trees cost between $135 and $210 depending on the size with delivery included.
TIP: Keep your tree away from sources of heat including lamps, televisions and sunlit windows as these tend to speed up the process of evaporation causing the needles to wilt from moisture loss.
